Legendary Inter defender and former club captain Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Bergomi has shared his belief that it will take a miracle for Inter to win the Serie A title this term.
Following on from last night’s 2-1 win over Sampdoria, Inter have cut the gap between themselves and second placed Lazio to five points and the gap between themselves and league leaders Juventus to six points.
Inter have 12 games to play, more than half of which come against clubs below European qualification places in the league and despite Inter’s kind schedule, Bergomi thinks it will take something special in order for them to clinch the Scudetto crown.
“Inter need a miracle to win the Scudetto. In the reverse of their remaining matches, they picked up 31 points meaning they would finish on 85 points if they repeated it but the title tends to be won with over 90 points,” he explained in the studios of Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia during the ‘Sky Calcio Club’ show earlier on today.
Bergomi proceeded to speak on Inter’s January transfer window recruit Christian Eriksen, who made his second consecutive start at San Siro last night against La Samp.
“He played in the right position and played a good game. I am always convinced that he can do more but he gave good signals.”
